Folks, this is continuing on about when I had my General Store, ages ago. My son and family come through going to Dallas to a church doings. The little one did not want to go. He said, “Mimi, I want to stay with you.” Then, I said, “Well, Papa is away and if you stay with me, you will have to go to the store with me and stay all day.” He thought it over. My mother, his great grandmother lived nearby. After a bit he said, “Well I could go over to Namnies and crochet and take naps.” Of course, mother was delighted to have her little great grandson all to herself. Later, when I went to pick him up, she taught him how to crochet a chain stitch. There it was, yards long all over and through her house. I love telling that. That child is to be 42 years old soon. And now much too busy to crochet and take naps, with a family of his own and working as a boss for UPS in the city.
